About the Author
I currently have over 20 years of industrial maintenance experience, with over 15 years being in Predictive Maintenance / Reliability Technologies. I am a certified Level 3 vibration analyst who specializes in performing diagnostic testing in many industrial environments (i.e. Petro-Chemical, Power Generation, Steel Manufacturing, Wood Products, Mining, Air Separation, Offshore Oil Field Development, etc.). I am qualified to use multi-channel / transient vibration analysis tools, strain gages, 4-20 mA process data interfaces, Operational Deflection Shape (ODS) analysis, experimental MODAL analysis, on-line condition monitoring, and machinery protection systems for testing purposes.
